Overstone Kondowe appointed leader for Persons with Albinism in Africa

Malawi’s Association of Persons with Albinism leader Overstone Kondowe has been appointed as Chairperson for the African Union for Persons With Albinism (PWA).

Kondowe; Gets continental post

Kondowe, who left the country on Monday,  was elected in Pretoria, South Africa at a congress represented by leaders of various PWA groups across Africa.

“I am greatly humbled by the confidence and trust persons with Albinism in Africa have in me” announced Kondowe through his Facebook page on Tuesday.

He said his appointment is as a result of God’s favour.

“It’s not about merit but God’s favour to lead the first ever African Union for Persons with albinism,” wrote Kondowe.

He therefore gave credit to African Disabiliy Alliance (ADA) and European Union (EU) for technical and financial support towards the establishment of the PWA AU association.

Kondowe left the country leaving behind a debate on whether he will return on the country or not following the escallating killings and abduction of people with albinism.

This has prompted PWAs to ask the government to allow them to flee the country and seek asylum in other countries.

“When your country refuse to be a home” briefly wrote Kondowe prior to his departure.

Over 20 PWA have been killed in Malawi while several others have been abducted since 2014.

Dzanja lalembatu apa…………”Glory be to God!”!

Overstone, with this position you can now ably influence global organizations/leaders that matter to assist you [albinos] in Malawi. Always remember nickie D. gave you the “strongest” message from government……. and the message was that the death of over 20 albinos in Malawi is not a serious matter to them [government] and the matter deserves no immediate attention!! I am certain you also noted that the president cemented the same message by choosing to sideline your group by chosing to visit flood victims only!

Once again “Glory be to God” for all this!

Now the song “munthu sungamumvetse munthu” anakhala bwanji munthu done by Atoti Manje makes more sense. Just yesterday when it was announced that Kondowe has left for South Africa, we called Kondowe all sorts of names. A good for nothing idiot from the north who uses other albinos to fight his own battles as one of the comentators said. Just 24 hours later, we are all joined to fly messages of congraturations. Munthu sungamumvetse, aaah anakhala bwanji munthu. Congraturations Overstone Kondowe. Keep fighting and never mind anyone. Trust your insticts and move. Munthu sazatheka.
